DIY DisastersA recent survey commissioned by Swinton Commercial has offered an interesting look at how DIY affects UK tradespeople.

From membrane-less roofing to masonry holes plugged with shoes (yes, shoes) – more than half of the 100 tradesmen and women surveyed say a quarter of their workload comes from DIY jobs gone wrong.
